Yasiel Puig is perfect in his World Series predictions so far, but he’s going all-in for Game 7.
The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder previously assured fans not to worry after their Game 5 loss, vowing the team would bounce back to force a Game 7. His prophecy was fulfilled with a 3-1 win at home over the Houston Astros.
Now, the Cuban slugger is rallying L.A. to join the club in an exuberant victory celebration following Wednesday’s winner-take-all affair.
“Come out here tomorrow,” Puig said postgame, according to USA TODAY Sports. “This is going to be incredible. Soon we’re going to have a party.
“Tomorrow we’re going to run around the field after the victory, and we’re going to have a parade in Los Angeles and party big time. … That 29-year wait is going to be history for all those people who have been here since 1988. Whoever didn’t die today will die tomorrow of a heart attack.”
Puig could be banking on history to support his grandiose claim.
As a franchise, the Dodgers are 3-4 all time in Game 7s, though they’re perfect in two postseason finales since moving to Los Angeles.
